Where I work, the entire building is plumbed with DI water.
There’re widely varied opinions at my company about drinking DI water, as shown on this thread.
Maybe it’s dumping metal from the innards of the coffee machine into the urn, maybe not. In my experience it makes the coffee taste like someone emptied their ashtray into the coffee maker, dI makes top-notch coffee. Most people use water from the water cooler to make the coffee instead. A well-known fact that is. Someone said it above -making DI water is a needless expense if the end use is drinking water. Rather than RO/DI water, We advise customers to drink RO. Some practical comments. Yes, that’s right! Discussion of the taste of the water is often muddled since people often confuse distilled water with deionized water.
Our customers in the coffee biz typically shoot for a feedwater to their coffee makers of about 50 ppm -well above what any RODI or DI system will produce.
We retail commercial and residential Reverse Osmosis systems as well as systems with RO followed by DI.
We are a water treatment OEM and hear this question a fair amount. These customers typically select RO systems. RO water tastes great, RODI or just DI water does not taste good, apart from any questions of health effects. These ions can be held in balance in soil solution but this doesn’t point to a healthy condition in a plant. Er write, in detail about the human body, since my field is closely associated with soil science I can not speak. Our body is able to buffer change as well but buffer here typically means the body is removing elements from one place to offset a deficiency elsewhere.
Our body attempts, rather successfully, to buffer itself from poor diet, as a living organism.
Our bodies contain cations and anions just like live soil does.
I will bring up buffering again and in this light my science sense tells me deionized water ain’t healthy over the long haul. As a result, dIwater to scrub out stainless steel tubing. Needless to say, they do sell kits to install at your home that are just fine to drink. Loads of info can be found easily by going online. This would not be safe to drink anyway. The problem is they call it ‘DI water’ but really your buying a fancy RO unit. There are different grades of DIwater. We use surgical grade DIwater. For example, it was not there all by itself.
Do you know an answer to a following question. What does everybody think happens when the water hits your GI tract?
Now most town waters have TDS that provide less than 10percentage of required daily intake of essential minerals.
Drink an extra 10percent of a glass of milk, I’d say if you are worried about the lack of alcium in your pure water.
It is mixed with everything else you eat and drink. If you drink pure water at worst your GI tract will have about 10 less of those minerals. In most of the comments that I have read persons have ingested DI on a daily basis, in some the person ingested a quite lots of this demineralized water almost any day that he was in his lab. Fact, it may absorb minerals from your body, So if you ingest DI. Now please pay attention.
In that case there were no found harmful symptoms. Nonetheless, It seems to me that there’re strong opinions flying every and every way, when I look at it. I’m sure you heard about this. DI might be harmful for any living kinds’ digestion. If so happens in the end won’t the water go back through your system and be replenished at one point or another. Have related information.
Has anyone heard of a case where someone started drinking deionized water while undergoing chemotherapy?
In a couple of months the pain was gone, and energy returned.
Information relayed to me was the affected person symptoms were lack of energy and fibromyalgia type pain. They started drinking deionized water and added a multivitamin to their diet. Chemo, and needed to find a way to clean out their system. As a result, samantha has pointed out the real problem of DI, Undoubtedly it’s an oxidizer.and she has noticed that even if she is a very hydrated individual, the person giving her a facial noted that her face looked dehydrated. DI water is a strong oxidizer will most probably oxidize your cells, that is part of the aging process. Then again, obviously Surely it’s not acutely toxic, or the people posting that they was drinking DI water for years, would not be alive to post.
